Community Spotlight: Arch Street Center

This month I had the privilege to team up with my personal trainer to raise awareness and raise funds for Arch Street Center. This center is Lancaster, PA’s only nonprofit recreational day program for adults suffering with serious mental illness. This is a very vulnerable population and the center provides a fun and safe place for their members.

Please take a few minutes to watch the video:

We got to interview the directors and interact with the members. I tried to beat one of the guys at playing pool, but he had me licked. Then Shawn, my personal trainer, led everyone in some fun stretching exercises. We got to tour the kitchen, game room, TV room and hear about how the members are given a place to belong and find community.

Here’s an overview of what the center provides:

🔵 restaurant quality meals (including breakfast, lunch, and snacks and food to take home for dinner)

🔵 in-house activities, such as:

– card games

– pool

– arts and crafts

– movies

– puzzles

– laundry facilities

– private shower (with access to hygiene products)

– computers

🔵 off-site activities, such as:

– beach trips

– museums

🔵 dedicated staff that ensures a safe and welcoming, stigma-free environment
